Muddy Scouts Find Solid, but Not Spectacular, Yields in Nebraska

August 18, 2015 10:50 AM

It's the second day of the 2015 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour, and scouts on the western leg of the tour are making their way through Nebraska.

So far, the crops sampled seem to be looking good, but as scout Matt Bennett reports, some disease pressure has been noticed:


Paul Neiffer, The Farm CPA, who is also scouting on the western leg, says yield estimates have been holding slightly above the three-year average for the tour, but he has yet to find any 200-bu. corn on his route.

On Twitter, scouts echoed these findings--solid yields, with some disease pressure, as well as wet and muddy conditions. To see more reports, follow #pftour15 on Twitter.
